Bayern Munich forward, Robert Lewandowski, has taken a shot at the club directors claiming they failed to protect him when he was being heavily criticised.
Lewandowski has scored 155 goals in 197 matches since linking up with the Bavarian side from rivals, Borrussia Dortmund and finished as the top marksman in the Bundesliga with 29 goals.
Despite that, he was widely criticised by in the media after he experienced goal drought during the course of the campaign.
After the board seemingly failed to shield him from the critics, he grew unhappy, made clear his willingness to depart and was linked with clubs such as Real Madrid, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain .
“In April and May everyone criticised me. And I felt no protection from the club, I felt alone,” he told Sport Bold.
“I scored no goals in two or three important games and suddenly everyone was saying: ‘Open fire against Lewandowski!’ I did not see anyone who supported me at the time. Neither of the club bosses defended me. I did not feel good in Munich at that moment. Being at Bayern did not fit for me at that time.”
The U-turn was prompted by the support that the forward got from the stands and now the former Borussia Dortmund striker is not thinking about a move.
“I noticed that in Munich the fans support me. I realised that they still want me here. I will never strike, never mess with the club. I’m not wasting any thought on another club now.”
Lewandowski has made a formidable start to the 2018-19 season, bagging a hat-trick in the DFL Super Cup victory over Eintracht Frankfurt then getting the only goal of the game as FCB saw off SV Drochtersen 1-0 in the DFB Pokal last weekend.
